More than 111 years after the sinking of the Titanic, memorabilia from the luxury liner were auctioned off for tens of thousands of pounds on Saturday, including a first-class menu.
According to the German News Agency (dpa), the menu is said to be the only surviving menu from April 11, 1912. It shows signs of water damage and features oysters, lamb and mallard duck.
The menu was auctioned at the Henry Aldridge & Son auction house. An anonymous bidder paid £66,000 (US$81,000) for the artefact.
A first-class blanket, which was presumably carried by a survivor in the lifeboat sold for £76,000.
The Titanic set sail to New York from Southampton in the south of England on April 10, 1912 with more than 2,200 people on board.
After just a few days, the luxury liner, which was considered unsinkable, struck an iceberg – and sank, killing more than 1,500 people.
